children and teachers and others in connecticut, it is a time for congress to begin a thoughtful dialogue on what we can do to deal with these mass casualty incidences in our country. they have been going on for some time, but perhaps when we see the faces of children, principals, teachers, and others that burns upon our hearts and motivates us to take further action. i want to make sure that, mr. speaker, that congress takes the appropriate action in a thoughtful, willful, determined way, and not jump to quick conclusions as if simple fixes will prevent this from happening. first, to the parents of children across america who are asking questions, mr. speaker, i'd like to offer some of this advice and also in my background as a psychologist, it's important for people to remember this, parents should be asking their children what they have heard about the incident. we should listen to their concerns and their emotions. we should answer their questions with age appropriate information. we should support and comfort and reassure them of their safety at home and school. we should observe and

. >> people across the country, we just heard from the mayor of bridgeport, connecticut, a few minutes ago, a lot of folks trying to get guns off the streets right now. two rocket launchers were part of the 2,000 guns that were part of the buyback a few days ago. is that a better method than putting more guns in tnoticein schools? >> i doubt the rocket launchers are legal right now. the best solution would be to have a police officer in each school. and we have had a program like that for many years. it's called school resource officers, they not only help protect against violence, but they teach a course or two in police work in leadership. they make friends with the kids that are there every day. >> what about the cost of that? what about the cost of that? >> that's the problem, we only had it in perhaps 10% of the schools and when the fiscal crisis hit in 2008, the legislatu legislature had to cut back from that. so it's in a small percentage of the schools. so my proposal is second best. the preference is to have the school resource officers in the schools, that would be the best solut
